Présentation de l'éditeur

A whole half of this latest volume of Hal Fosters epic masterpiece is devoted to the remaining chapters of ""The Winning of Aleta,"" a 20-month epic in which Valiant obsessively pursues his future bride. Unsurprisingly, this is followed by a sequence called ""Matrimony,"" which ends with a newlywed queen adjusting to the luxurious, exciting court life at Camelot. But Vals marriage does not signal an end to his adventures. In 'War in the Forest' he spies on approaching Saxons, while the 1946 strips end with the couple displaced, forced to return to Thule.

Great material, great product 26 juin 2012
Par Jim Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It gets harder and harder to review each succeeding Prince Valiant volume. The same can be said for all of them. The artwork is breathtaking, the storytelling first rate, the production values superb.

Also fascinating is how Foster introduces characters that are intended for just one story arc or even for just one or two pages. Many writers wouldn't bother developing much in the way of characterization or motivation but Foster is different. He doesn't just have an anonymous desert warrior molest Aleta. No, he has "M'Belo, harem-bred and womaen-raised has none of the chivalry of the warriors. He lays sly hands on Aleta, as she goes by in the moonlight."

This volume also points out one or two things about Foster's writing that don't really work well for me. One is his frequent depiction of romantic love as a freight train which overwhelms the characters. Foster is a big fan of the "love at first sight" school of romance but I prefer the "start small and build up over a period of time" approach. No doubt Foster's approach is the best for a fast moving adventure strip.

Foster's humor can also seem a little on the juvenile side as the "Sir Puny" arc in this volume demonstrates.

But I nitpick. I've read the pages in these volumes a dozen times and I never tire of them. Very highly recommended. A newspaper strip has never been done any better than this.

Woth Waiting For 25 août 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
How long was the publication delayed for ?.. i dunno.. seems ages.. but the quality of the book can not be faulted and the Love the publishers have for the work is clearly evident from the cover page to the end page. .. and after all it is Forster at the ( growing) heights of his art work and writing.

All too soon the second World War would impose restrictions on the size of the strip and Forster would have to stick to the more conventional grid layout.

With the long delay between order and fulfillment on this book it makes me hesitate to order the next volume. I want to wait and see it it will come out on time.. still, whatever the case.. it will be well worth the wait.

This is what a great comic strip should be like. 28 juin 2012
Par Robert Fisher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Just over a year ago, I wrote my first Amazon review, that being Volume 2 of Fantagraphics' Prince Valiant. I have just completed Volume 5 and I continue to be impressed. Hal Foster was a magnificent artist and knew how to tell a great story. This volume concerns itself with the courtship and early married life of Prince Valiant and Aleta, Queen of the Misty Isles, who might be seen as the star of this volume. There is adventure as Aleta has to deal with being kidnapped by Val, who is in a deranged state. Just as he recovers, she is abducted by a warlord, leading Val to launch a major military effort to save her. They want to marry at Rome, but there is the matter of Vandal raiders getting ready to sack the city. On their way to Camelot, Aleta needs a new wardrobe and Val's expression upon receiving the bill is priceless. Aleta's first meeting with King Arthur is a mutually embarrassing episode, as Aleta is skinny dipping at the time. She disguises herself as a knight, and while comic, she does prove herself quite brave. When Val's father is facing trouble with an old friend, it is Aleta who finds a solution. Besides Prince Valiant, the first part of the book also includes a three-panel strip Foster did called The Medieval Castle, and while not quite as good as Valiant, it is a little gem, focusing on the two sons of a knight. If you are a serious enthusiast of comic strips, this series should be seen as an essential addition to your collection. With its combination of adventure, romance, pathos, humor and especially some of the finest art seen on newspaper pages, the early years of Prince Valiant show the genre at its best.

Fabulous artwork and storytelling 15 septembre 2012
Par Sketch19 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The fifth volume of Hal Foster's saga of the civilized world teetering on the edge of the Dark Ages, with his hero Valiant, delivers a heartfelt payoff as Aleta takes the stage in a role that presents her instantly likeable and admirable. Although today's newspaper strips have several series that are well done ("B.C." comes to mind) the quality of the artwork and story here in this volume contrasts sharply with the poor and shrunken strips of today. These panels covering Sundays 1945-6 are vividly printed with the craftsmanship of Foster evident on every page.
The attention to detail, use of shadows and wide range of colors and shading is staggering. The embellishment on many panels is as good as you'll ever see...the crisp lines remind me of Neal Adams comic covers from late 1960s or early 1970s. Barry Windsor Smith accomplished similar levels of panel detail in a few Conan comics of the early 1970s. This volume is a visual feast with equally good, and at times moving, storytelling. The only drawback is "the Midiaeval Castle" series running along the bottom line of panels for about twelve months. This series is not bad, but less space for the main storyline.
I strongly recommend you read the fourth volume prior to this one, because there will be a much better payoff for you if you know the background on how Valiant arrived at the desert edge. Even better to start in volume one. Enjoy!
This should create a new generation of fans. 25 juillet 2013

About 40 years ago, my father get two Nostalgia Press books of Prince Valiant. I loved the strip, but the binding was terrible, and they only had about 3-4 years worth of strips. I've been looking for extend the collection every since, but reprints were all terrible and often B&W and abridged. When Fantagraphics reprinted the entire run about a decade ago, I got some, but they were hard to find and were paperback.
These new books are literally something I've been looking for for my entire life.
These new books have vinyl covers, which are a little cheap, but much more durable than the paperbacks. More importantly, the comics are beautiful. The printing is a little larger than the old Nostalgia books, and the coloring is better. This was obviously a labor of love. Where I have over-laps, I've compared the coloring and printing. The Nostalgia books better reflect the words in the story and often color in scenes that were all blocked in one color in the older book.
I bought the first one for $80 and was immediately ready to shell out that much for each. To find them for only $14 was an added bonus.
If you already love Prince Valiant, buy them without hesitation.
If you've read it in the newspaper but weren't impressed, buy it and you'll understand why it is considered such a classic -- the old Hal Foster stips were soooooo much better than the ones today.
